The accommodation description had changed from single room to dormitory since booking which was inconvenient.

Hello, We apologise for any misunderstanding. We sell all of our beds as individual beds in each room. We do have a few private room options, but they are all listed as Private. We do often upgrade guests for scheduling purposes, but we never downgrade. We are sorry for the miscommunication and we hope to see you again in the future! Cheers, -Trek Team

Simple,safe, clean, convenient

Pros: We needed someone central to stay in the city, and our double room provided everything we needed. The room was clean and of a good size and the bed was comfortable. We only needed to use the showers which for me had just been cleaned. The location was fantastic being a short walk to Wellington's main streets, Bars, Cafes and Restaurants. We have stayed before and we will stay again.
Cons: For a hostel in the middle of the city, we found it has good rates and good facilities. Based on this there was nothing we didn't like (there was a bit of noise at night, but that is expected in a hostel - you can't choose your guests :) )
Location: Wellington CBD - everything is nearby :)

Solo Mum with teenager daughter

Pros: I loved the location. Its right next to St Mary and the Angels. The overall feel is good and theres a great common room on ground floor.
Cons: What we paid, I think the room needs a bit of a makeover. Its tired and paint work is chipped. Window needs fixing seriously.
Location: Its really near great eating places and a good supermarket. I-site is a few minutes away for getting information on what to do. Loation is 10/10
We arrived early and welcome was a bit casual. We had hand luggage for our 4 day stay and I asked if we could leave our bags until our room was ready. The girl handed us a key and pointed to a luggage room down at the bottom of the dining room and said we could store our bags there. The room was dark and full of peoples' backpacks. A guest came up and told us the light switch was out side the door. As we had our laptop we were worried about security of our bags so went back to the girl at the counter and asked if we could store our bags more securely. She was agreeable to keep them in her office. Our room - double with ensuite was not private. It was straight off a big common room/ dining and it was noisy when trying to get to sleep at night. Our room smelled- we aired it when we went out but this horrible smell of chemical cleaner? permeated the room. The window latch was broken so you could not leave the window open at night - it would swing wide open which was too cold as temperatures that week were 10-13 degrees. The old kettle's switch was broken. And there was no electrical switch to plug it int so we had to put it on the floor by the only plug on the other side of the room. The bathroom was grungy - basin taps were both missing their tops and the shower was scummy - a cleaner needed to really scrub it in all the edges and corners. The beds were so uncomfortable. The bunks were fine,but thin mattresses - even my daughter found them really uncomfortable.

Best in Wellington

Pros: Had an awesome chill zone as well as brilliant facilities in the room areas.
Cons: I think the drainage in the bathrooms - at the moment, the water essentially just pools on the floor. Also, stronger beds, was worried it might break.
Was a pleasant stay, people were lovely and it was an all around awesome environment.
